Visit foo/absolute_url and you will find that it 
"has an empty or missing docstring".
Is this by design, or is it just something that nobody has needed?
I would like to propose making it callable TTW, unless somebody
knows a reason it should not be.

I could make use of it in two ways:

1) every now and then I forget that it doesn't work, and I type stuff like 
when I'm not sure if baz is being acquired from foo, from bar, or the site root 
(or maybe even a CMF skin) and I want to find out quickly.

2) (kind of esoteric)  It would be nice to be able to easily get "normalized"
URLs from zope objects into non-zope systems that link to Zope content.
e.g. today I wished I could tell a JSP developer at my company to
use something like 

<a href="<%= stupidHttpClient('http://zope_server/foo/bar/absolute_url') %>">

(... and yes, we do have something like a stupidHttpClient.)
